Week 1: Steady Flow to well
We start with the description of radial coordinates and steady flow to wellsin confined and unconfined aquifers. We also introduce finite difference methods.
Week 2: Transient Confined and Semi-Confined Flows
We describe transient flows in confined and semiconfined aquifers. We use graphic methods and semi-automated methods to calculate aquifer properties from well tests.
Week 3: Transient Unconfined Flows
We continue to describe well tests in unconfined aquifers to calculate unconfined aquifer properties. We also introduce slug tests and their analysis.
Week 4: Well Fields and Dewatering
We start by reviewing the superposition principle and review the problem of domain boundaries. We then focus on dewatering examples.
Week 5: Pump and treat / Capture Zones and MODFLOW models
We continue to explore the topic of well fields in the context of extraction and injection wells. We show an example of pump and treat design and an in-situ remediation design. We also show an example of a well model in MODFLOW
